For some reason, I don't think the wife would be with 3 antennas needing to be purchased. Thanks.
My favorite antenna is the one that works.
You should have plenty of signal, but you're mounting in the attic, so it depends on the roofing material. You probably could point any small VHF/UHF antenna (CM-3010, Winegard HD7000R, Denny's up-7, RCA ANT751, etc.) west and get 2,4,6,7,9,12,28,31 etc. 38 and 59 may be strong enough to pick off the side of the antenna. If you want 38 or 59 a Winegard MetroStar MS-1000 may work well in your situation. If it was me doing it I'd probably mount a MetroStar on the roof using an eve mount and run the cable in through the attic vent.
Actually, I'd start out experimenting with a rabbitear-loop antenna (RCA ANT111, etc.) in the attic, just to see what I could expect, before I spent money on a big antenna.
